Capitol Report: House Proposal Exempts Schools from Prevailing Wage

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

It seems to me Missouri has a long and committed history of supporting education and reforms aimed to improve it. In fact, Missouri’s 30th Governor, Alexander Dockery of Gallatin, was famous for his reforms which improved schools.

Gov. Dockery is best known for dramatically increasing state funding for schools and the creation of school districts. So personally committed to education was he that his last

Capitol Report: Missouri’s Broken Welfare System

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

The budget process for Missouri has begun once again. It is very frustrating to see the sheer amount of money we spend on entitlement programs (welfare) in Missouri.

I have, hanging on the wall of my office, a letter written by a former Legislator from my district, Stephen Lincoln, who served in the legislature for years back in the 1940s and 1950s. The letter is

Capitol Report: Defending Gun Rights in Missouri

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

In many ways, I am very glad to see 2012 over and done with — it was quite a year to be in politics! However, I am excited to begin 2013 in the Missouri legislature. It is a real honor and privilege to represent my neighbors in North Missouri down at the Capitol. As I walked into the Capitol last week to begin session, entering

Capitol Report: Assuring an Independent Judiciary

by State Representative Casey Guernsey

Missouri’s judges make important decisions that affect every Missourian. Unfortunately, the people of Missouri have a very limited role in the way judges are chosen for our highest courts. This makes little sense when you consider that the judicial branch is a co-equal branch of Missouri government sharing responsibility with the Executive and Legislature. After all, judges are public servants too and accountability is paramount

Capitol Report: Prop B — Politics and Taxes

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

Over the last several weeks, I have been writing about the various propositions on the ballot for next week.

Of the four initiatives, the tobacco tax increase — Proposition B — has spurred the most discussion. It is certainly true that Missouri has the lowest tobacco tax in the nation and that cigarettes can damage our health. However, I am very much a believer in

Capitol Report: Obamacare

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

On June 28th, the United States Supreme Court upheld key provisions of Obamacare. As a result of a portion of the ruling, Missouri must decide how to implement a healthcare exchange. We’ve already seen the impact of Obamacare on Medicare with the major loss of dollars to our local hospitals as it came to light over the last month. For example, Heartland Hospital in St.

Capitol Report: A big win for Missouri voters

by State Rep. Casey Guernsey

It has been a good week in the fight to give Missourians a voice on Obamacare. A Cole County Judge ruled against Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s biased ballot summary of a proposition that gives Missourians more control over the implementation of Obamacare. Proposition E amends Missouri law to require a vote of the people, or State legislature to establish a health insurance exchange in
